The Fall Forum is a condensed, intimate conference with even more limited attendance at approximately half the size of the Guild’s Annual Conference. The Guild added this second event at the request of economic developers who were seeking a smaller, more close-knit conference with more one-on-one access to site selectors. Approximately half of the Guild’s 50 members, including Associate members attend this event. Similar to the Annual Conference, knowledge sharing, discussion panels, breakout sessions and networking are the hallmark of the Fall Forum.
At the 2017 Fall Forum, the Guild rolled out a new speed networking session called “Table Talk” with conference attendees seated at tables and Guild members taking 15 minutes at each table to meet, answer questions and build relationships. This speed networking was such a success for all parties that we will be including this activity at future Guild events.
